2 DVC associate degrees DVC ASSOCIATE DEGREES DVC offers associate degrees in arts and science. These degrees are comprised of specific general education and other requirements, major requirements and elective opportunities. Goals of DVC s associate degrees The goals of DVC s associate degrees are: the development of college-level skills; the acquisition of basic principles in the major disciplines and methods of discovery and problem solving; the formation of insights from several disciplines in order to make better-informed decisions; an appreciation of our multicultural heritage; an understanding of the values we hold so that we may use them to examine and guide our life choices. Associate degree general information The completion of the associate in arts or science degree provides students with strong academic skills and a broad, in-depth, general education. Students may explore their interests by selecting from a different major emphasis and electives as well as completing required general education courses. Associate degrees are college and state approved and accredited programs. Non degree applicable courses Units from courses numbered below 100 cannot be applied to the degree. Non degree applicable course grades will not be included in calculating GPA for a degree. Note: Only one of ENGL 116 or 118 may be applied to the associate degree. Upper division coursework Upper division coursework may be applied to meet IGETC and DVC general education requirements based on equivalency criteria. Official transcripts must be submitted to the DVC Admissions and Records Office. No units will be assigned; students are required to fulfill a minimum of 60 units in order to apply for the associate degree. Meet with a counselor It is very important to consult with a counselor before selecting courses. Counselors help students discover and examine all their available choices including petitioning for exemption from courses whose requirements the student may have already met. Graduation It is the student s responsibility to file a Petition to Graduate by the deadline date during the semester in which he/she plans to complete the requirements. Diplomas are mailed at the end of each term. Please allow for 6-8 weeks processing time. Graduation ceremonies are held annually at the end of spring term.

3 DVC associate degrees Catalog rights and continuous enrollment for degrees and certificates The college catalog specifies the requirements to earn a degree or certificate. The requirements in a specific academic year s catalog are the student s contract (catalog rights) with the college and that catalog defines what the student must complete to earn a degree or certificate. Students may follow the catalog requirements that were in effect for the academic year when their attendance began at Diablo Valley College or follow the catalog requirements in effect during subsequent years of attendance provided that continuous enrollment has been maintained. Effective fall 2009, continuous enrollment is defined as enrollment in at least one course at Diablo Valley College, Los Medanos College or Contra Costa College in an academic year (fall, spring, summer). The student must receive a grade or notation on their transcript of A, B, C, D, F, P, NP, I or W for the course. This continuous enrollment policy applies to students who are new, returning or continuing. Students completing a degree may choose a G.E. pattern under one academic year and major program requirements from a different academic year. The academic year(s) chosen will need to be declared on the application for the degree. If there is a break in continuous enrollment, a student will be limited to the requirements of the academic year effective at the time of re-enrollment or those in subsequent years, as long as enrollment is continuous. Students who are not in continuous enrollment and do not re-enroll may petition for a degree or certificate but are subject to the catalog requirements in effect at the time of petition. The college may authorize or require course substitution for discontinued/changed courses or unit requirements. The college reserves the right to change catalog rights or program requirements based upon legal mandate and accreditation standards at any time. A student must complete a Course Substitution form to initiate substitutions to program requirements. Catalog rights do not apply to CSU G.E. or IGETC certification. Students must follow the CSU G.E. or IGETC pattern in effect when they petition for certification. Courses used for certification must be on the approved list at the time they are taken. Associate degree requirements for students entering fall 2011 To be awarded the associate degree students must meet the following requirements: 1. Basic degree requirements A student is eligible for graduation with the associate in arts or associate in science degree after the satisfactory completion of a minimum of sixty (60) units of degree applicable course work with a grade point average of 2.0 (C) or higher.

4 We believe that realizing your academic and career goals can best evolve out of studying a broad range of college courses from mathematics to science, language, technology, and the humanities. We also want to remind you of a wisdom shared among all of these areas of study, across cultures, and through the ages: that seeking and possessing knowledge for its own sake, in addition to more practical motives, is an immensely worthwhile endeavor. Moreover, we believe that all academic disciplines are related and, taken together, best prepare you to interact in our world. The faculty s goal is for students to acquire the following lifelong skills and abilities: The ability to: write clearly and read critically; use scientific reasoning to understand the physical and biological world and how we affect it; adapt to change by being flexible, curious, and open to new experiences; understand oneself, and others in relationships. The knowledge of: the applications of mathematical concepts; U.S. history and government; information technology; the connections across disciplines. The skills in: GENERAL EDUCATION OPTIONS Option 1 DVC general education DVC requires that all students complete general education course work as part of their associate degree requirements.

5 Reasons for DVC general education objectives for the associate degree I. Language and reasoning Students study principles and applications of language leading toward logical thought, clear and precise expression, and critical analysis of communication. A. English composition Students learn to: write an essay of several paragraphs developing a central idea; use written and spoken language to communicate effectively; apply principles of critical thinking to reading and writing; identify the primary elements of an argument and determine their validity; discuss how meaning is created and how symbols are used; illustrate how the English language represents and reflects the cultures that use it. B. Communications and analytical thinking Students come to understand, command and appreciate the principles of language, as language is symbolic of meaning. These principles are applied through logical thinking, clear and precise expression of concepts, and critical evaluation of expression in a variety of forms. C. Mathematics comprehension DVC graduates have gained an understanding and appreciation of the power and beauty of mathematics. They understand mathematical abstraction and generalization and the use of mathematical symbols. They should recognize and examine mathematical relationships in the form of equations, graphs, and tables. They can use appropriate technology to help solve mathematical problems. DVC graduates have learned to apply mathematical methods to solve quantitative problems in the sciences, in their vocations, and in their daily lives as citizens and consumers. II. Natural sciences In the natural sciences, students study humans as seekers of fact and makers of meaning through abstraction and generalization. By studying disciplines within biological and physical sciences, DVC graduates should be able to: explain the basic concepts of biological and/or physical sciences well enough to be able to interpret meaningfully and criticize representative material from the mass media; clearly distinguish between opinion based upon preconception and opinion based upon controlled scientific experiment; solve scientific problems in contexts other than those in which model problems and solutions are learned. III. Arts and humanities Students study the human experience as it is reflected and shaped by the arts. The faculty believes DVC graduates will be able to: develop an integrated and analytical approach to the study of art, humanities, languages, theater, film, literature and music within a historical, political, and sociological context. critically examine the relationships between the ways people live and the arts forms they create. These instances should be from different times and cultures. demonstrate their own ideas of aesthetic and ethical standards by engaging in an art as an originator, adapter, interpreter, or performer. IV. Social and behavioral sciences Courses in the multiple disciplines allow students to gain a basic knowledge of the cultural and social organizations in which they live as well as the behavior and social organizations of other human societies. Students fulfilling this requirement study the variety of ways through which society and the greater world are examined and understood. The faculty believes that DVC graduates should be able to: demonstrate an understanding of the complexity of social phenomena; discuss the scope and functions of social institutions; recognize points of view and their assumptions; critically examine generalizations in light of relevant evidence. V. Multicultural studies Students study contributions from various cultures to prepare to live in a diverse society. Through close examination of such things as art, society, history, and culture, students gain knowledge of experiences and perspectives other than their own, increasing their tolerance, respect for, and interaction among people from multiple cultures. 62 REQUIREMENTS DIABLO VALLEY COLLEGE CATALOG

6 VI. Information literacy Information literacy is the ability to both recognize when information is needed and to locate, evaluate, synthesize, use and communicate information in various formats. The faculty believes DVC graduates should be able to: recognize when information is necessary; develop effective research strategies; locate, retrieve and use information in a variety of formats; critically evaluate, and synthesize information; effectively create, present and communicate information; competently use computers and other information technology tools; understand the social, legal and ethical issues relating to information and its use. VII. American institutions Addressing American institutions are courses that address the Constitution of the United States, the operation and evolution of representative democratic government, which include the legislative, judicial, executive branches and the electoral system, under that Constitution and have as a primary focus of examining the political philosophies of the framers of the Constitution and the nature and operation of United States political institutions and processes under that Constitution as amended and interpreted. In addition, courses strive to develop and gain an understanding of the rights, obligations and responsibilities of citizens in the political system established under the Constitution. These courses also cover the Constitution of the State of California within the framework of evolving Federal/State relations and the nature and processes of state and local government under that Constitution. Lastly, the courses analyze contemporary relations of State and local government with the Federal Government, the resolution of conflicts and the establishment of cooperative processes under the Constitutions of both the State and nation, and the political processes involved. VIII. Ecology of human health The faculty believes that development and maintenance of personal and community health is basic to all endeavors of DVC graduates as workers, lifelong learners and citizens. To this end the health requirement will enable students to: develop an awareness of the dimensions of health and their interrelationships: physical, mental, intellectual, social, environmental, and spiritual; develop life skills to promote health and prevent disease; understand the primary structures and functions of the human body as it relates to health and disease processes; evaluate health care services, information, and products. IX. Physical education The faculty believes DVC graduates should be able to: develop and evaluate optimum muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, and a personal sense of wellness; develop individual skills in specific activities with potential for lifelong leisure time participation; participate in activities that promote creative expression, relaxation and reduce stress; develop knowledge and understanding of physical activity, encourage appropriate health practices, and communicate the value of an active lifestyle to quality of life.
